All SLCC Summer Courses Will Be Offered Online

At Salt Lake Community College, we value the health and safety of each student, faculty and staff member above all else. That’s why SLCC will continue with online-only delivery of classes for SLCC’s upcoming summer session.
As fallout from the pandemic continues, it may be reason enough to consider using the extra time you might have to take those courses you’ve always wanted or needed. Or, maybe these reasons will nudge you toward registering online:
1.Why not? I’ve run out of Netflix shows. 2.It’s affordable! I mean, no tuition increases in 2020 and out-of-state tuition is waived! 3.My summer vacation plans are, like, waaaay canceled. 4.I’ve always wanted to learn more about quantum physics. 5.SLCC is the best way to step ahead, summer, spring or fall.
In short, a lot of us now have the extra time to focus on lifelong learning, advancing academically toward our goals or retooling ourselves for a vastly changed job market in these times.
At SLCC, we’re trying to keep your education …

Former Athletic Director Awarded National Honor

Norma Carr, former Salt Lake Community College athletic director who retired in 2014, is credited with building a nationally competitive program at SLCC from scratch. She was a pioneer at both SLCC and in the overall Utah sports community. For her efforts, she was chosen for the NJCAA Appreciation Award, given to individuals at the discretion of the current NJCAA President & CEO to recognize superior contributions to the Association.

Carr said earning the award is extremely gratifying and humbling.

"I loved working with the NJCAA and helping to make things better," she said. "The NJCAA is a great organization and I am so honored to be receiving this award.  I am extremely surprised and honored to be receiving this award as those who have previously received this award are NJCAA icons whom I greatly respect."


Carr led initiatives towards new athletic facilities and athletic programs in her 25 years. As the first female to oversee an intercollegiate athletics pr…

The Show Must Go On - Online

Student Leah Windley's winning poster
This year’s SLCC Student Art Showcase is still on – online, that is. Thanks to the efforts of Virag White, assistant professor of graphic design, and others, the contest was juried, judged and awards were made – all online.
Leah Windley’s poster, pictured above, was chosen as the winner of the 2020 SLCC Student Art Showcase Poster Design Contest. Graphic design assistant professor Kerry Gonzales organized the poster contest prior to the Showcase, and judging was done by full-time and adjunct faculty in the Visual Art & Design department.

The Showcase is organized by the Student Art Showcase Committee, chaired this year by White and made up of full-time faculty in the VAD department. The 2020 show has a total of 261 juried art pieces representing eight submission categories. The categories range from digital to traditional mediums, 2D and 3D art. This year a total of 30 awards were given.

Softball Athletes Coping with Distance and Life Without Competition

Savanna Montoya, Brenna Adams and Nya Laing are adjusting to life without softball at Salt Lake Community College because of COVID-19, which has forced classes to be given online and cancelled all sports at the college.
Softball, to be clear – the team, togetherness, competition, life lessons, the crowds – was life, one now spent in isolation away from their friends and beloved coaches. A promising season had just started when it abruptly ended. Adjusting hasn’t been easy.
“I think the overall attitude of the team is generally sadness, because we haven’t been able to play the sport we love and be around each other,” says Adams, an infielder and sophomore from Rexburg, Idaho. “I think that one of the hardest things for me through all of this is just that the season is over, that I wasn’t able to play this season with all of these amazing girls who I have grown to love.”
Brenna Adams
Adams, along with Montoya and Laing, are leaders on the team. It’s up to them to rally themselves and be…
